fSTTwO RIVALS; OR, MAN -AM MONEY ! 

FROM THE FRENCH OF EMILE SOUVESTRE. 



The very name of French novel may conjure up ideas equally alarm- 
ing with that of French cookery. Whether' we shall be regaled with 
" Jillet of a fenny snake," instead of fillet of sole ; whether an oyster-fed 
cat can be ingeniously made to represent rabbit; or a poodle noarisjfci 
op spongecake transformed into the similitude of a pheasant. Admit- 
ting that much French literature is, ijke .sausage-rolls, light and disap- 
pointing; granting that Dumas is wild, Paul de Kocfc licentious, and Sue 
too often prolific of horrors, it by no means- follows that the same*.soil 
which sends forth biietle and brier, may rM breed celandine and daisy.

THE FREEBOOTER'S PRIZE ! 

A TAEE OF THE OCEAN. 

The above tale is one of the most truthful and exciting which has ever 
characterized the adventures of any Past Middy of the British navy. The 
adventurer leaving home in comparative poverty ; his enlistment upon 
a war-vessel ; his desertion ; joining bis fortune upon tho deck of a pi- 
rate ; his re-desert on : his next appearance upon a merchantman ; the 
merchantman's fight with the pirate; the Quaker Captain; the Captain 
de juerrc; his tremendous fighting; the chase ; final capture of the pi- 
rate, and marriage of the hero concludes one of the- most daring tales, 
that has ever-been recorded upon paper, and which excites the admira- 
tion of all.
